NORTH PARK — North Park residents look to the north, south, west and east and what do they see?
Farmers markets — and they want one too, kind of.
"We want it to be a 'community market' that is less about the same farmers you see elsewhere, and more about bringing the community together," explained Craighton Berman, who's among the organizers.
The group already has met its $1,500 Kickstarter goal and is now raising "stretch" dollars that will help pay for music entertainment, a kids activity tent and seed funds for 2018.
The pop-ups in August, September and October will help determine what neighbors want and will support in the future, Berman said.
Nearly a dozen vendors are on board, and organizers are working to add more local businesses and artisans to the mix.
The pop-up markets are scheduled for 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Aug. 27, Sept. 24 and Oct. 29 at Peterson Elementary School, 5510 N. Christiana Ave.
